    A great place to start is your BMI. Check the link I have provided. At 5'-6" your weight should be around 150. As a note, I am male, with muscular build, my BMI shows I need to be 175. At 185 I am fairly trim, so 175 feels very light to me. the BMI can be used as a starting point. However, if your BMI is approaching 30, then you need to address where you are at. Good luck!

    Between 115 and 155. Average, 135. Probably, your weight should be toward the lower half of the range, between 115 and 140, because you are not yet an adult. Don't go below 115 unless your doctor OK's it.

    Source(s): BMI calculation.

    Ask your doctor to help you determine the proper weight for your age and height. If you are over or under the recommended weight adjust your diet and exercise plan until you meet that weight goal.

    Source(s): My doctor told me to do that and now I am the right weight for my age (i'm 13).

    It all depends on your frame. I would think anywhere between 125-150 is normal. The bigger the frame the more you will weigh.

    Depends on your build.... I was about 135lbs 5'7" at 12 and I was a normal weight.

    well anything under 115 is not very healthy, even if you have a high matabolism. it depends on whether your curvy or lean. but im thinking 120-160.

    it is the range of 110-135

    and if u want to test then first of all u calculate u r BMI.

    the formula is,

    BMI=weight in kg/(height in metres square)

    if it is in the range of 18.0 to 24.9 then ur in a healthy and perfect.
